The Never Ending Playlist Week #2

6. Standing In The Way of Control (Soulwax Mix) – The Gossip

Kicking off Week 2 of this never ending series….

Welcome to week two of the Never Ending Playlist. I’ll let you into a secret, this playlist probably will end at some point, but there are thousands of songs on the list and I suspect that by the time we get to the end of that list, we might have all lost our hearing, marbles or both and therefore it really won’t matter.

The Gossip were, as you probably all know fronted by a lady called Beth Ditto. I imagine that’s not her real name. She was once famously described as a combination of Brenda Lee, Dolly Parton and Siouxsie Sioux. A description that is so wrong on so many parts that I don’t really know where to begin. It’s like saying that Jack White is a mixture of David Beckham, Burt Bacharach and the bloke from the Cillit Bang adverts (actually that’s not a bad description).

The most famous version of the song is the Soulwax Nite Version which cranks up the beats, extends the opening yelp of Ditto and turns it into a full of dancefloor monster. However, the Le Tigre Mix is also worthy of your attention – as is the Tronik Youth Version, mainly because I like the name Tronik Youth.
